About Oxfam

When you volunteer at a festival with Oxfam, you are joining a movement of millions fighting for a fairer, and radically better world. Because every shift you do raises money for Oxfam and our poverty-fighting work around the world.

Each year, our volunteers help raise over an incredible £1.5 million! For every hour you work as a steward, Oxfam are paid for your time. On top of that, our festival shops raise hundreds of thousands by selling donated stock, and our campaigners engage thousands of festivalgoers with Oxfam’s campaign work.

Collectively, our amazing family of volunteers has an unmeasurable impact that expands well beyond the festival field.

What Oxfam does

Oxfam believes that poverty is an injustice that can and must be overcome – so everyone has the power to thrive, not just survive.

We believe that by standing together with communities around the world to speak out against injustice – working in the toughest places on earth and tackling the inequalities that exacerbate poverty – a kinder and radically better world is possible.

Last year, Oxfam and partners supported 9.8 million people around the world to fight poverty. By responding fast when an emergency hits, funding long-term development work, and campaigning and putting pressure on world leaders to tackle the injustices that cause poverty.
